Well that stinks!!!! If you don't mind paying a little extra and shipping I know Drfostersmith fish section has them. Tropical Fish for Freshwater Aquariums: Indian Dwarf Puffer

Thatpetplace.com has them too and at a cheaper price. Malabar Dwarf Puffer - Carinotetraodon travancoricus | ThatPetPlace.com

Only thing about them is that they'd be shipped in the cold for a long distance ...and I only need one fish.

Both places are like 35 bucks for shipping. :/

Am pretty sure they both have a live arrival policy. Plus I know Thatpetplelace.com shipping is overnight shipping. So they won't be in the bag/box for long.

They're the ones that are charging 35 bucks though...and I won't know what sex I'm getting. Can't bring myself to pay that much for a 6 dollar fish. :( I will if I have to...its just a lot of money. :/

I can completely understand!!! I paid like $2.50 per puffer from the store and that was with them ordering them for me. If I had to pay that plus $35 I don't know if I would. Its a awful lot of money for sure.

If you can find any LFS that you are welling to drive to. I know two suppliers that carry these little guys are Sunpet.com and Seagrestfarms.com. If the stores order from them there is no reason why they can get them unless they supplier is out of stock at that that moment.

No LFS around here anymore...but I did find a store that may be able to get one shipped in for me. They're going to call me tomorrow. *fingers crossed*

A bit late to this thread, just browsing through the photo section - the tank is BEAUTIFUL, and I happen to be obsessed with DP! How are things going over there since you last updated...
